I think this will be a tradition now, at least as long as I can remember to do it.

Last year we posted the 10 most viewed Legal Insurrection posts in 2015, and it was well received. So here we go again.

2016 was a turbulent year, but I’m pleased that year over year, we increased page views by 1 million views versus 2015, to over 16 million views. And 2015 was over 1 million page views over 2014. So things are heading in the right direction.

We didn’t see a huge election year bounce this year, but we also didn’t crash like many “conservative” websites, and our traffic is up post-election.

So without further introduction, here are our 10 most viewed posts, plus an honorable mention.

10. Hillary: ‘I Don’t Hold Any Ill Feeling’ Against Benghazi Families Who Misunderstood Me

7. Analysis: Is it lawful self-defense to “run down” rioters surrounding your vehicle?

This grew out of Prof. Glenn Reynolds’ (Instapundit) tweet about running down rioters. He was right, based on this analysis by Andrew.
